|Here is a chronological list of Star Wars books and some links to some other Star Wars
related pages. If you find any inaccuracies on this page - please me with the corrections.
The books listed in red are the ones I don't have. I have not included
the comic books or children's books. I have, however, included "Dark Empire" simply because
it is vital to the story line in some of the later novels.
This list is very old and I stopped
updating years ago. When I first made this page, chronologies were not available. Now they
are listed in the front of every book. After I made this page up, the Star Wars books exploded in
volume. I am afraid if I try and keep this current, I will leave out a book here and there.
So please accept this page as a beginners reference.
